Still no announcement on the NYRBII players.
1. Juan Castillo - Edgardo Rito similarities. Not sure if he's back
2. Lamine Conte - never got his visa situation figured out. Only the second player in NYRBII club history to have a contract but not play a match.
3. Emir Tombul - atrocious for most of the year at CB, but no other options available. Did improve by the end of the year.
4. Steven Sserwadda - he will be back
5. Daniel Edelman - he will be back, but possibly with the MLS contract
6/7. Jake LaCava, Jeremy Rafanello - both talented players. LaCava dropped off a bit this year and Rafanello was relatively steady. LaCava has the connection with McCafferty that may keep him here. Rafanello good enough to stick around another year.
8. Kyle Zajec - will be interesting to see. Captain. Played multiple positions in a pinch. Not sure if he gets into MLS, but steady enough for a USL talent.
9. Curtis Ofori - project player at left back that didn't see much time last year. Likely back.
10. Luther Archimede - once he started playing after visa/injury issues, he showed pretty well. Hope he is back this season.
11. Michael Knapp - likely gone. MSU grad so there is that going for him. He had some moments where he looked like a pro player, but far more missed or clumsy tackles.
